Since organic reach for most Facebook Pages fell to about 2% of total 'Likes' I've been considering whether or not Facebook marketing is worth it. On the one side, if you create a fantastic bit of

You'd be right. It could be that the landing page didn't deliver on what the ad promised. My case study for that was from a while ago and it was limited. Also, very probably my fault.

Thanks for pointing that out.

I just don't trust ANY of them to run our country responsibly. #politics  
All political parties are turning the volume up on their voice boxes in the run up to the European elections and with only 12 months to go until the General Election. The trouble is, I don't have any confidence in any of them...

Great views from the beer garden out front, telescope a nice touch, the food is excellent and if I was to complain about ANYTHING it's that they never seem to have quite enough staff on and, given the drive to get to it, it's then relatively expensive for a pub. It's a nice afternoon out though, so I'd recommend it for every now and then in the summer or winter.

Inexplicably, the owner of this company is going around giving every design agency in Manchester a 1 star rating. And he has posted on his blog about online reputation management - which he is very soon going to find is a difficult thing to do. Idiot...

The way the staff in this 'shop' treated my fiancée, leaving her in tears, leaves me with no option but to rate the place as badly as I possibly can. One member of staff in particular was very rude and left my future wife feeling humiliated and embarrassed. For your own sake, steer clear of here when looking for YOUR wedding dress.

Only five stars? Not enough. Dave is a brilliant photographer and person. He did our wedding and was brilliant all the way through. Worked really hard, put everyone at their ease and made it a very special day, enhancing it, not getting in the way and retaining a superb sense of humour. Highly recommended for your wedding or any other event you might have going on.
